Thousands of organizations around the globe rely on this same tool to help with critical hiring, succession planning, teaming and coaching. It provides important insights about a person’s Thinking Style (how quickly they process new complex information), their Behavioral Traits and their Occupational Interests. These insights help leaders clarify innate talents, strengths and stretch areas for themselves as well as for their fellow team members.
PXT was developed by Profiles International and is continually being enhanced by its parent company Wiley & Sons. Millions of people have taken the assessment with impressive results. The PXT is sanctioned by the US Dept. of Labor and meets all the validity and reliability requirements for a tool of its type.
One of the first things we ask of new clients is to take the PXT Total Person Assessment. This provides both them and us important clarity about their innate talents to help ensure we are coaching them to go with the flow versus swimming up stream so to speak. Importantly it also helps identify key strengths to leverage and critical stretch areas to either avoid or mitigate. Some clients have been hesitant initially but have found this first important step in the coaching process to be instrumental in helping them move forward effectively.
